Well, it’s about time. A couple of months ago, we got an amusing first teaser for HBO’s Veep, and last week saw the release of a short featurette from the set. But it’s only now that we’re finally getting a real look at the series, a political satire of contemporary American politics from In the Loop director Armando Iannucci.
Julia Louis-Dreyfus stars as a senator who wins the office of vice president of the United States, only to find that the job isn’t at al what she expected. Also starring are Anna Chlumsky, Matt Walsh, Sufe Bradshaw, and Tony Hale (looks like all that schooling finally paid off for Buster).
In addition, the network has unveiled another new trailer for Girls, Lena Dunham (Tiny Furniture) and Judd Apatow‘s comedy about twentysomething women trying to make it in the big, bad city. Watch the videos after the jump.

This winter’s been so mild that it feels more like April than February, but unfortunately, actual spring is still some weeks away — which means we’ve still got some waiting to do before HBO kicks off its spring schedule. Thankfully, the network’s been good about reminding us of exactly what we have to look forward to, in the form of teasers, trailers, clips, and the like.
Today, we have another new trailer for Lena Dunham and Judd Apatow‘s Girls, as well as behind-the-scenes featurettes for Armando Iannucci‘s Veep and of course, Game of Thrones. Watch them after the jump.

While I’m sure that Luck, Life’s Too Short, and Angry Boys each have their charms, it’s HBO’s spring lineup I’m really looking forward to. Between Game of Thrones‘ return and the debuts of Judd Apatow’s Girls and Armando Iannucci’s Veep, I already know exactly what I’ll be doing each Sunday from April through June. And now, at long last, the network’s provided some premiere dates to mark on the calendar. Get the details and watch the trailers after the jump.

What happens when actor Michael Richards meets The Blacks or Krazee-Eyez Killa? Talk about Trial and Error. I’m pretty sure we’ll be satisfied by the results this fall, as the four cast members of Seinfeld are reuniting for multiple episodes of HBO‘s Curb Your Enthusiasm. While this marks Richards’s first appearance on the uncensored and legendary sitcom of Larry David (Seinfeld co-creator), Jerry Seinfeld, Jason Alexander, and Julia Louis-Dreyfus have all appeared to play and send-up themselves during Curb‘s six-season run. According to EW, the cast hasn’t appeared together on a scripted TV series since their show’s underwhelming finale 11 years ago.
It’ll be veddy cool to see the old sparks fly inside the Bald One’s neurotic, mishap-prone world; but I’m possibly more excited just to see Leon (J.B. Smoove) talk shit and lady advice to Larry again. Let us know what you and Bill Gates think in the comments.
